Modern society is increasingly governed by technology with more than 3 billion internet users in 2015. Unlike their sequential counterparts, distributed systems are much more difficult to design and are therefore prone to problems. On a large scale, usability reminiscent of sequential consistency, which would provide the same global view to all users, is very expensive or proves impossible to achieve. This book investigates the best ways to specify the objects that are still possible to implement in these systems.
This research explores the gray area of distributed systems and draws a map of weak consistency criteria, identifying several families and demonstrating how these may be implemented into a programming language.
- Several maps comparing criteria
- Inserts for main notions, including for consistency criteria
- A guideline story with Alice, Bob and Carole
- A description of existing memory models and consistency criteria
